Sterling silver, real Turquoise and Coral.
Money clip measures approximately 1-3/4" long and 3/4" wide.
This money clip is a true treasure! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Linda Yazzie, out of genuine Sterling silver, along with a real Turquoise stone and a real Coral. A total of TWO stones are gently set in hand cut bezel settings, while a scalloped leaf design, a mini silver bead, and hand crafted silver work to complete the money clip for a stunning finish. The lower portion of the money clip is made out of nickel for stronger grip and durability.
Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of its appeal and beauty.
